About The Artwork

A stag antler nyoi sceptre in the form of an attenuated sunflower stem (after an intelligent sashi-netsuke by Imai Oshin circa 1880-1900). A fine art carving from a malformed antler, shed by the deer. The slender stalk terminates in the corona, which is worked to represent the head of the flower. Around it winds a channel of exposed porous core and close to the base a small figurine has been carved to simulate a small branch. The dew drop in the corona is a moonstone of gem quality. The sculpture is inspired from a haiku by Basho (Dew drops. How else can you wash away so much dust of the world) and it is aiming to reveal a spontaneous, familiar and with a simple subtle beauty, image of inner clarity. An image that has been experienced as a crossing of a floating, fleeting world if dreams, happy and at times painful, though always transient.The deer (shika) or stag is emblematic of longevity and good fortune.
